Ideal volume of culture medium for use in TPP Tissue Culture Tube
Volume recommendations must be seen as guideline and do not represent an absolute value. TPP is not responsible for any outcome in this regard. The usual media volume to surface area is 0.20 - 0.5ml/cm2, the upper limit is set by gaseous diffusion through the liquid layer and the optimum will depend upon the oxygen requirement of the cells. Also, more confluent cultures require more media and changing more frequently.
The number of cells on a confluent plate, dish, or flask will vary with cell type. For this table, we give no recommendations, but indicate source of information such as: Freshny R. Culture of animal cells Wiley-Liss 1994, etc.
